Hii everyone! I finally finished the first part of my new Series. It takes place in Prince Caspian (movie-verse) and so far, I'm pretty excited for it!
Without further ado, I present….WORDS!!
Disclaimer: Calm down peeps. I'm just a fanfic writer.
Caspian, Peter, Edmund and Lucy all sat around the Stone Table, breathing in…breathing out.
Lord Sopespian smirked at the stares of horror that surrounded him as he stood on the middle of the battlefield. He admired how they shrank away, the fear etched in every feature as he almost waltzed towards where 'High' King Peter stood. In Sopespian's opinion, the king looked incredibly small and terrified now, and the thought made him smile. He inclined his head to the woman wearing all the wintry clothes was standing next to him and nodded. She could proceed.
Caspian refused to make eye contact with any of the other Pevensies. He kept his empty gaze to the stone floor, wishing it would suck him down and keep him there. He deserved it anyways. He kept his hand at his mouth to make sure he didn't cry in front of the kings and Queen Lucy, who was already sobbing.
"Edmund, dear! And Peter, Susan and Little Lucy! I've missed you all so much!" The White Witch, glittering in the sunlight, stood before them, a cruel smile lay upon her lips as she regarded them. She held out her arms, almost as a joke. Edmund cringed and took two steps backwards. Lucy clung to his arm that wasn't holding his sword, but he soon dropped the weapon out of sheer shock of what stood before him. Jadis rested her coal-like eyes on his terrified face, and her smile grew.
Peter stared blankly at the wall. Planning had to be done. An attack, a rescue, something to get a grip on the guilty swell of his gut. He swallowed, daring a glance at Lucy. Her eyes were closed as she clung to Edmund and sobbed into his shoulder. Peter sighed and kept his eyes closed this time too.
"We're giving you an option, Peter darling. Either I wipe out your army with one simple stroke of my wand, or you give yourself up to me willingly." Jadis kept her gaze locked on Peter's flushed and trembling face, regarding him with penetrating eyes. Peter swallowed, his courage clogging his throat, causing him to choke and cough slightly. Caspian glared at Sopespian with fervor. He had truly succumbed to this evil; the beautiful witch stood in front of Peter still, her wand dangling from her hand as she idly twirled it between her fingers.
Edmund didn't really feel Lucy's tears soaking through his shirt, or her clenched fingers on his arm. He stared at Caspian, than Peter, than the wall in front of him, where he imaged he saw a young lady with dark chocolate hair and a purple dress, holding a bow and quiver full of arrows, marked with an 'SP' elegantly carved into it's wooden side.
"Peter, it's the only way!" Susan challenged, tugging on his arm to get him to look into her eyes. Caspian held onto her other elbow, trying to keep her from moving away from his side. Peter continued staring at the Witch's malicious smile, daring her to make a move.
"Will you shut up, Susan? You're not going with them!" Peter commanded, still refusing to look at her. Susan placed her hand from his arm onto his cheek and pushed his eyes to her own.
"I can replace you. You heard the Witch! I'm an acceptable bargain!" Susan pled.
"I'm not bargaining with anyone!" Peter shouted, holding his sword out in front of him.
Everyone in the room seemed to take a deep breath at the same time. Except Lucy, who was still crying into her brother's shoulder, holding to him as though he too would be taken away.
Peter had lowered his sword as Susan pushed past his arms and Caspian's hands. Edmund made a blind grab for the end of her dress and Lucy called her name. Susan closed her eyes and ignored them, tossing away their concern for her. She stepped forward, in between Jadis and Peter and took a deep breath. The Witch raised her eyebrows and beamed before nodding to Lord Sopespian, who gestured a few soldiers to tie Susan's hands behind her back. In a moment, Susan had become a prisoner. Peter felt tears sting his eyes. Caspian couldn't move. Edmund and moved his arms protectively around Lucy, who was sobbing. Susan looked back at them, smiling.
"Until we meet again then, your majesties." The Witch responded, giving Peter a low, mocking bow and pulling Susan along beside her. A few feet later, she turned Susan and slapped her. Lucy screamed, and Edmund had to restrain Caspian.
What do you think so far? Yeah, it's a total AU, but whatever. Don't worry, I'm loving this series already and am trying my best to crank out letters and jumble them into words then jumble those into sentences very quickly, so keep checking back.
With that, I leave you with my wish list:
